My wife and I stayed a week in August at the "Small Cottage". First let me say it is a very small cottage and it is a true Cape Cod summer cottage. If you know what to expect you will be not be surprised, it is not the Four Seasons! Having said that we loved the rustic cottage and the reason for staying there is right out the window. It is as perfect of a location as possible if you love the ocean. A private beach, on the Shining sea bike path and great views of Martha's Vineyard! We rode the bike path everyday, it is about a 5 minute ride into Woods Hole where you can find bars, stores, restaurants and the ferry to the Vineyard. It is a great location for a couple or two or a small family. Just to sit on the lawn during the late afternoon and watch the boats made every stress you may have had melt away! If you love the ocean and beach this location cannot be beat! It is very quiet and private. We have already booked for next year we loved it so much! I would have given the cottage 5 stars but it is a little worn inside, but maybe that's the charm of it!!! Although we did not have to use it the larger bedroom has A/C which would be great if needed. The outdoor shower was awesome! Overall a picture perfect vacation stay!!!

Early June Tranquility Week

  • 5 of 5
The view was #1 on our list. My daughter (49) liked her comfy bed for #2. I (78) liked the tub's wide ledge and the safety bar. Just inside the blue door we were greeted by the first of many nice touches: a beach-going straw hat on the coat rack and a decorative mirror across from it. Next, a small desk was ready for postcard writing. Further in: an interesting fireplace, wing chairs, comfy couch and large TV. Much time was spent at the table drinking in the view while visiting with our family who had come for a nearby event

Small Cottage is on a narrow dirt road. You can't imagine the location from the road, but when you get out of the car, you will not be disappointed. The oceanfront location, with its lovely manicured lawns is positively perfect. Also convenient is directly across the street is a little pathway leading to the Shining Sea Bikeway. 5 stars for the location!
Inside you will find a nicely appointed, fully stocked interior complete with most everything you will need which makes packing a dream. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Brita pitcher in the fridge and a large flat screen tv with extended cable & Netflix. Nice touch. While I did not use the appliances, except for the coffee maker, it was nice to have them available. The queen bed was very comfortable and the sheets were of good quality. There are plenty of pillows, blankets and fluffy towels, too. While the interior and fixtures are old, it was very clean. I take away 1 star for only having one window AC (in the bedroom) and the interior cabinets can use a lot of sprucing and upgrading. Unfortunately, it was damp & raining for most of my stay and a central air/dehumidifier system is greatly needed as it was damp and muggy inside, too.
I brought my bike and road the SSB path to the end in Falmouth then walked Main St, shopped, had lunch & even ice cream for dessert! What a cute little area to visit. The next day I walked the path in the opposite direction into Woods Hole for more shopping, sightseeing & lunch.
I highly recommend Small Cottage and it's ideal location. It is a perfect spot for solo travelers like myself, great for a girls getaway or for a small family. The beach is beautiful and surrounding towns offer all you can hope for. Happy vacationing all. See you again Small Cottage!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two children ages 12 and 9 had a lovely vacation at Small Cottage. The cottage itself is very cozy, well maintained, and easily fit the 4 of us. We LOVED being able to walk across the lawn right onto the beach and spent most of the day time doing just that or picnicking or playing board games on the picnic table in the backyard. Since the kitchen is fully equipped we were able to make our own meals and eat either outside or in front of the large picture window overlooking the ocean. There were definitely quite a few people coming and going from the Olcottage right next door (gorgeous 10 bedroom house), including a wedding our first night, but that didn't diminish our stay at all. We ventured into Woods Hole once and enjoyed the museum, aquarium, and docks. And being so close to Falmouth easily enabled us to grocery shop and rent from Redbox. It was a perfect low key vacation for us and fall was the perfect time of the year for us to get away from the busyness of life and the crowds of the summer.

Cozy, vintage feel cottage in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
My husband, baby daughter, and I had a wonderful stay at the Small Cottage. It is really the cutest little place with an amazing view of the water! We took a zillion photos of that view!
Everything is in good working order, and a lot of the traditional fixtures and architecture of the cottage are there for you to enjoy. If you are looking for a real traditional "Cape Cod" experience I think this is your place. You can also walk into town on the bike path (it's a long walk but an easy one), and Woods Hole has some fun restaurants to enjoy. Best part is you are able to take the ferry right in Woods Hole to Martha's Vineyard for a day trip if you want---we did that and I'd recommend it!
This place is great for a small family---we were able to put our daughter to sleep in the front bedroom and we stayed in the adjoining main bedroom, which worked out perfectly.

Woods Hole is known the world over for cutting edge science - especially Marine biology and it is chock full of things to do in the summer for science- and ocean-lovers. There are free Friday MBL lectures all summer long given by renowned scientists that anyone can go. A terrific aquarium with a touch tank and two seals in an outside tank and a wonderful summer science school for kids that many generations of locals have sent their kids to. Many of those future scientists state that Woods Hole Children's School of Science http://childrensschoolofscience.org was the start in their interest in a career in sciences.

Quite a few of our renters have rented the cottage for three weeks just so their kids can go to the Children's School of Science - you can walk to the village of Woods Hole on the bike path - right near the cottage.
